Beautiful drive, worth the visit :) Only If you are in the area, take a drive down "Follow That Dream Highway" where Elvis filmed a movie of the same name

The Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve is a lovely location to view nature with an observation tower as well as a boardwalk. Highly recommended!

Small boardwalk that goes to a lake quite nice. Not a lot of wildlife visible but a few water birds. What is worth it for sure is the tower looking over the marsh. Amazing view.

Visitors should be aware that recent (May 2014) forest clearing has dramatically altered the landscape, and, ultimately, the claim that this is an undisturbed piece of Florida. Fortunately, the tower area has not been affected, but the board walk and surrounding trails no longer have...More
